LEG PAINS - FEELS LIKE COMING FROM BONES
HI DOC. I HAVE BEEN GETTING THESE LEG PAINS - WHETHER I'M SITTING, LYING DOWN OR STANDING FOR TOO LONG. NORMALLY IT WOULD GO AWAY AFTER A NIGHTS REST BUT IT HS NOW LASTED FOR 5 DAYS AND ITS NOT GETTING BETTER. ITS HARD TO DESCRIBE, BUT FEELS LIKE THE PAIN COMES FROM "INSIDE" MY LEG - MAINLY MY RIGHT LEG. IT STARTED WHEN I FELL PREGNANT WITH MY DAUGTHER AND COMES AND GOES - EXCEPT FOR THIS LAST STRETCH. PLEASE ADVISE WHAT THIS COULD BE AND WHETHER I SHOULD HAVE IT CHECKED OUT. THANK YOU.

Hi Flea
YES you should have it checked out - could be a nerve pinching at the back or something growing in the bone itself. Please let your doctor have a look.
